Host a Cut-A-Thon!

Wigs for Kids supports Ponytail Cut-A-Thons and Haircut Cut-A-Thons. Both of these types of Cut-A-Thons benefit everyone involved - the salon, the stylists, and the community as a whole.

Wigs for Kids will provide you with all the materials necessary to hold a Cut-A-Thon:

Guidelines: Step-by-step instructions to be successful.
Press Release: To announce your Cut-A-Thon to the public including the date, your location, and the requirements.
Pledge Sheet: Give to donors to obtain pledges for each inch of hair cut or a total monetary donation.
Signage: You will receive a template for a sign that you can place in your salon advertising the Wigs for Kids Cut-A-Thon.
Fact Sheet: Provides essential information listing all that you need as the salon owner/operator for hosting a Cut-A-Thon.

 

 

 

 

Proven PR = Community Awareness = Increased Sales

As your program develops and is shared with the greater public, it will help support the Wigs for Kids mission, promote your generosity, and also help your salon.

We will provide you with the press release template to share your wonderful story with the public:

Announce your salon as an Ambassador Salon
Promote the coin collection box program
Promote your Sponsor A Child fundraising
Announce holding a Cut-A-Thon

We can also provide you with a template to create a flyer customized to promote activities at your salon. Your salon will be listed as a resource on our Salon List on this website.

You should start recruiting potential hair donors and stylists as early as possible for your Cut-A-Thon. Some states have rules limiting locations where stylists can cut hair, so remember to ask about these state licensing laws when you inquire about stylists’ availability.

If you are planning on holding a Cut-A-Thon somewhere other than a salon, you’ll want to consider a place that has power, water, plenty of light and seating for hair donors. You’ll also need a table for stylist equipment, hair donation forms, shipping materials, a container for other donations in case people cannot donate hair and room for Wigs for Kids display materials.

Stylists should bring scissors, styling tools and products and smocks. We ask that hair stylists not only donate their time to cut the ponytails or braids, but to also provide styling, which we hope will encourage future donations and help the stylist gain new customers.
